Not sure about the centered composition here. I would suggest cropping in closer on the model to get her head and torso on the left up and lower third lines. I think you could improve this shot with a bit more contrast as well, it seems a bit flat to me.

I do however really like your choice of DOF and exposure control is spot on. Good luck with the challenge. 8

i love how every color found in the grass is somewhere on the girl either in the hair, skin, dress, or headband. the composition is nice and the detail is beautiful. Nice editorial pic.

The picture is veru interesting, but there is too much background space. Less background space would add to the picture, esp since the background is blurred.

In a color challenge it's a big risk to present a low-saturation image. But I really like the effect. Thanks for showing us something different. For creativity, subject, and location, I give a high rating. The composition feels a bit weak however. Perhaps there's too much negative space on the left. I still enjoy the image.

I really like this one. Losing the headband is the only thing that would have made it better for me.

Nice approach. I think cropping just a bit off of the left would make it feel a bit more balanced and get rid of the bush (?) edge and rock (?). Because it is a touch darker than the rest of the shot, I find my eye drifting there.

I like how you took this in a natural setting. Much more enjoyable to view than all of the studio setups in this challenge (IMO anyway).

You made a nice choice with aperture for good DOF and clarity. The models pose works well also (bet that rock became uncomfortable!).

Only nit I have is the dark green foliage in the lower left. I would have considered a little tighter crop on the left or cloning this out.

Overall, very well done! Good luck in the challenge.

Despite the fact that the subjects skin and dress are different colors, they still match the hues in the grass.

A great idea for a shot, but the rock in the bottom left could've been left out.

One of my favorite on this challenge. Good composition and flow of the dress-8
